Threats From European Wasps
Thrive In The Australian Climate
European wasps Vespula germanica are one of the most common wasps in Sydney and the rest of Australia. They are native to Europe, temperate Asia and North Africa. The warmer climate of Australia allows these wasps to thrive in larger numbers as some nests can house more than 100,000 wasps.
A European wasp is 15mm long and has a size similar to that of a bee. They have a bright yellow body with a distinctive V marking. It also has two long black antennae and bright yellow legs.
The lack of predators and the climate in Australia allow the population of the European wasps to go unchecked. They inhabit around human habitations where they can get their food. They can be found scavenging at picnic areas, yards, food processing factoring and especially residential homes.
The sting of a European wasp is very painful and highly inflammatory, causing burning pain, swelling, and redness. They are known to sting their victims repeatedly. Their repeated stings can trigger allergic reactions and cause the life-threatening anaphylaxis. There have been recorded cases of stings that caused death in Australia.
